Born and raised in Vienna, Austria, designer Arthur Arbesser is known for his personality infused collections which combine a sharp sophistication with a pointed energy. Studying at Central Saint Martin’s College in London, Arbesser found his space amongst the art scene of the city, refining his own personal approach to design in the process.
Launching his womenswear collection in 2013 at Milan Fashion Week, Arbesser’s debut combined an intimate presentation with an original collection that soon gained him notoriety and support from the fashion world. He was also a finalist in the LVMH prize in 2013, invited during the same year to the prestigious PITTI Immagine Fair in Florence as a guest designer.
AW 2017 COLLECTION
Arthur Arbesser presented a Technicolor reworking of Wim Wenders’ classic black-and-white movie ‘Wings of Desire’ for Autumn/Winter 2017. Shown off inside a functioning army depot, key pieces included androgynous military uniform-inspired suiting, which was given a luxe touch with pinstripes created from strips of tiny heat transferred crystals.
ss 2017 collection
Vienna born designer Arthur Arbesser looked to his Austrian roots for his Spring/Summer 2017’s utilitarian-style collection, drawing inspiration from the school uniforms and holiday clothes of the early 1900s. A cheeky palette of acid-bright colors rendered in Swarovski crystal fabric and stones brought a contemporary spin to the pieces, while the minimal silhouettes played off the use of Swarovski crystal.
